when did that come out?

It's on the spec sheet, unified memory for video, and processing so the console can push however much it needs to whatever side and not be as limited as previous consoles. That's what's making the PS4 have the ability to actually play a game while you're downloading it, or suspend a game and power on the console and be brought right back to where you left off....Xbox "720" is rumored to also have 8GB of memory, but it's GDDR3 I believe.....

It's been confirmed by Sony, I think it was mentioned during the conference. Here it is for those that haven't seen it.

Sony: DualShock 4 light bar can change your mood when gaming in the dark

Everyone is focused so much on the DualShock 4′s light bar being used simply as a built-in Move controller working in tandem with the new camera peripheral for PS4. Scott Rohde, Senior VP Sony World Wide Studios, jumped onto the PlayStation Blog this past week and talked about a new way that games might use the light bar and a dark room to influence the player’s mood while gaming.

Playing games in the dark versus a well lit room depends heavily on the game being played. With Move and Kinect gaming, well lit areas are ideal for the cameras. What playing in the dark does for other games is allow it to immerse the player into the game by blacking out the real world around the tv. Who would have thought that the light bar on the new DualShock 4 could be used to color that dark space in front of the player to influence things like their mood while gaming. Rohde paints this picture pretty well:

A lot of gamers, myself included, like to play in some dimly lit rooms. And when you’re playing a game and the whole area around you changes color slightly based on what that light bar is doing, it’s not something you’re staring at and your expecting, but it changes your mood and it changes the way you feel when, whatever it is, when you fire a button, when you
into an area where you are in a cold blue area – think about Journey. You’re in a cold blue area, and then you move into more of an orangey earth tone – a warm area. And that controller is coming with you.

When the whole room around you is sort of suddenly changing from the blues and greens into the oranges and yellows, you might not really even know what’s happening, but your whole sense of immersion is definitely greater. It’s a really good thing. I get really excited about that color bar.

I help but imagine a character like Nathan Drake traversing an underwater level while the controller is illuminating the space in front of me with a fluctuating blue ambient light effect. Then coming out of the water and engaging in all sorts of explosions and gun play while the light bar flashes and pops all sorts of reds and oranges, effectively surrounding me in the warm light of the in-game explosions.

In addition to this light show experience, the new speaker in the DualShock 4 will bring near field audio to the player (a la Wii Remote). Those gunshots from Drake’s own pistol popping off, the shells hitting the floor around the feet of your Killzone character, or the zombie bite from behind will all be something new to PlayStation gamers and developers will quite literally have their hands full.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
